Born in Philadelphia, I spent most of my adolescent and adult life in other countries, including France, Italy, Holland, Cuba, Poland and Hungary. I worked as a journalist for Agence France Presse in Rome, wrote the day by day account of the shooting of the Fellini film "8 1/2", published in several languages, then went to Cuba on my French passport and interviewed all the original participants in the revolution to find out when they become communists.
During the seventies, I studied Global Survival at U Mass, was a speech writer for Joe Duffey in Carter's State Department and worked at the U.N. press office.
After returning to France with my two teenage children, I wrote the only book that foresaw the fall of the Berlin Wall AND the dissolution of the Soviet Union, in French, while doing free lance translations for the Elysee, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the European Union.
Since returning to the U.S. in 2000, I've completed an original take on the religion/politics polemic, as well as a memoir.
That's for others to decide!
